With a garden overlooking the River Windrush, this busy centuries-old former coaching house is a perfect base for lovely walks and cycle rides in summer. Set in the picturesque Windrush Valley, the pub is popular with race-goers visiting Cheltenham. A quintessential Cotswold inn built of mellow local stone, the bar offers a range of well-kept Donnington beers and a concise wine list. The conservatory dining bar and alfresco eating area contribute to the friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Landlord Paul Porter’s enthusiasm for tasty food shines through with the menu’s descriptions: examples are slow-cooked knuckle of Cotswold lamb with rosemary sautéed potatoes and seasonal vegetables; and fresh chargrilled Barbary duck breast with autumnal berry sauce, potatoes and vegetables. Vegetarians are well catered for, with typical dishes including brie, spinach and cranberry wellington. Barbecues and pig roasts are held in summer.
